Robert: Parents turn basement into “Club Quarantine” for son’s 21st birthday

Birthdays have quickly turned bittersweet in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic gripping the world. Nobody really wants to celebrate turning another year older by sitting the couch because they can’t get together with friends or loved ones.

Despite what’s going on around the globe right now, one family in New Jersey weren’t going to let their son’s 21st birthday go to waste.

“The night of [my brother’s] 21st was a great night,” said 18 year old Emily Torchia. “In fact, it made this time in quarantine easier.”

Emily’s parents transformed their basement into “Club Quarantine” since their son couldn’t go out, with Torchia’s dad playing the bouncer, and mom as the bartender.

Torchia said she and her family are “very close” and they “do stuff like this all the time.”
